Best piece of advice I can give is search out the 'party of 6' adaptation on these hallowed boards.

I think you should also consider that most buildings will be wood - same as

'Natural Ruler' is a general Feat that you might like.
There will be others, you just need to look. I found these in 10mins.
I like KK's ideas of introducing the fey Pranksters.
e.g. yes, their ropes are suddenly cut or untied, & yes, there seems to be

You don't have to have the fey ever be visible, & it will make a great plot

My Player's limited their sawmill expansion due to 'hints' by friendly fey

Whichever way you go - good luck!
Also - I have just been thinking...
If you intend having outside forces wanting NPCs in a leadership position,
e.g. if you use some of the message board options presented for earning BP,

True dat... but using XP & what I said are not mutually exclusive. :)
I'm talking about the messaging to the players. XP is given for exploring,
XP can be handed out at any old time, but not necessarily tied to what grinder
Not biggie, I just come from a background where the messaging plays a bigger

Just to add my 2cp...
I added another Red Scale tribe early on, & that worked really well. They had
